I know, I know - I was looking at the bottle and the plant pot too
The store looked around for a better colour but no luck. Funny place - it's a craft store with scrap-booking next to home brewing.
Usually for photos I'll switch half the lights off. The glare is a lot less with the light sitting on the tank rim now but the hood would just cut out the reflection off the water. But still ok as is, looks worse in the photos maybe.
The new red alt is still there. Very green leaves and really just a stem with a couple of leaves so I'm not sure how it will go.
The older ones I re-planted had hardly any root development. Not sure if that is normal or not. So slow going.
The underwater lights are getting a little algae but going ok. Possibly not doing much. Still happy with them. Eventually if I swap to discus I'd still like to try underwater spotlights - maybe onto a huge piece of driftwood.
